Make sure it's a genuine GORE Vent AVS 113 when you want faster condensation clearing, potentially with fewer vents per lamp.

Today's sleek, high-value LED headlamp assemblies are vulnerable to more frequent condensation events, require more advanced ingress protection, and often have limited space available for vent placement.

Gore’s new low-profile adhesive vent AVS 113 enhances headlamp clearing and protection

Reduces condensation risk and speeds clearing for the life of the vehicle:

  • Reduces risk of condensation events — events are less frequent and less severe
  • Improves condensation clearing performance — can enable lenses to clear more quickly
  • Maximizes moisture vapor transfer — Gore’s highest diffusion per membrane area could mean you can use fewer vents per lamp  

Protects the integrity of high-value lamp assemblies for the life of the vehicle:

  • Maintains strong, lasting bond to housing — durable silicone adhesive effectively resists infiltration by fluids and water sprays 
  • Delivers reliable protection against ingress of fine dust, dirt and water — target frames are not required, but may be used if desired
  • Provides rapid, responsive equalization of pressures within the housing interior — membrane sheds fluids rapidly after contact, to maintain breathability
